Molly is a true water baby. She loves being in the water more than anything else in life. We attend swimming lessons once a week (and starting in June, twice a week), visit the beach as much as possible and take lots of baths.
As the weather begins to hopefully warm up, I plan to spend even more time at the beach and lake. I've been concerned though as Molly is fearless with water and I don't want her to drown. Last week a friend sent me information about life jacket sales through Seattle Parks & Rec.
On Saturday, we headed over to Greenlake to get Molly her very own life jacket The people selling the life jackets were great! They weighed Molly and then fitted her for a life jacket We ended up getting one that was slightly too big with the directions to really tighten it up when she wears it because she was on the cusp of sizes.
I'm looking forward to playing with Molly this summer in the water and I feel better knowing that she'll being wearing a life jacket that will help prevent accidents.
